There are a lot of stamp companies out there these days but none does cutesy animals and images better than Lawn Fawn! I had a request for a baby shower card and came up with two equally sweet options!
Here’s the first:
Yep, another shaker card! 😉 I recently ordered these adorable mini stars from Butterfly Reflections Ink and I’ve been dying to use them in a shaker! I stamped the mobile and sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and die-cut the image with Simon Says Stamp Stitched Circles. I colored the mobile with copics (yay #thedailymarker30day!) and went over it with my clear wink of stella glitter brush before applying glossy accents to the stars and moon. While that was drying I assembled the shaker card.
I cut the silver frame with the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle die and glued acetate to the back. Then I used fun foam to create the frame and holder for the shaker contents. I filled the shaker with the aforementioned tiny stars in silver and iridescent white, and Metallic Silver Stars and a mix of Glass Slippers sequins from The Ton. It’s super sparkly! To finish the card I adhered the circle to the front of the shaker and attached the shaker to a top-folding card base.
And here’s the second!
I decided to use the Hello Baby set for this card and started off by stamping the duckling, umbrella, and clouds with Memento Tuxedo Black ink before die-cutting them. Then I colored them with copics…I went over the clouds with my wink of stella glitter brush pen and added some glossy accents raindrops to the umbrella! Next I die-cut a watercolor panel with the Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Borders 1 die set (thanks to winning a gift certificate from the last Virginia’s View Challenge!) and stamped some of the sprigs of grass from the LF Hello Baby set in distress ink. I went over the grass with a wet paintbrush and added a few more sprigs and grass with the same distress ink. Once that was dry, I adhered the duck and then used foam mounting tape to add the umbrella. I adhered the panel to a piece of patterned paper from Lawn Fawn. Next I added the clouds and stamped the raindrops and sentiment. I tied a yellow ribbon around the piece and then adhered it to a top-folding card base.
I intentionally wanted to create cards that were gender neutral and I am really happy with the way they turned out. I’m still working on my copic coloring but it’s becoming more enjoyable (and less intimidating) everyday!
